Description [Suggest Change]
This route is the gem of the buttress. The only drawback is the first 15 feet has some crap rock. After that, you get some great rock quality and a full assortment of sizes/moves. After you surmount the brief choss, head up a stair step of tight hands to hands. Move on to a ledge and head up fingers to a #0.75 crack below a small roof. Some difficult jamming gets up to a fist slot that has a small crack in the back. Make a few moves, and gain the anchor.
Location [Suggest Change]
This is the furthest left route. It is worth the hike. 300 yards left of the Crescent, pass several good looking dihedrals until the rock looks like it is about to turn to crap. Right before this, you will see the dark corner that is the route.
Protection [Suggest Change]
Bring doubles from #0.3-#3 with maybe triples in one or two of the smaller sizes depending if you bother to place in the choss.
